If you or anyone has taken the head apart the spring is prob missing. Without it the line keeps playing out. I snatched the spring off of one of my older non Speedlock trimmer heads and it works fine. I'm not pleased with the Speedlock because its too hard to thread so I'll be puying a replacement for it soon.

Pull cord is tangled


Unusual, but it does happen. Probably should replace cord. Obtain new cord, can be found at almost any hardware store, then remove top engine cover (cowl), usually held on by 4 bolts,two in front and two in back.If your mower has a plastic cover on top of cowl, remove it first. Remove old cord by holding wheel (looks kind of like a pulley) so that it does not spin freely once old cord is cut. Cut cord anywhere outside of the housing as close to the housing as possible. Carefully release the wheel so that it can unwind. You will see where the old cord is tied to the wheel. use needle nose pliers and grab hold of the knot and pull old cord out. Now for the fun part. You need to "rewind" the spring by turning the wheel clockwise while looking at the inside of the housing. Once you have turned the wheel to a point where you might break the spring, back off one turn to be sure you have not over wound the spring. Usually, about 5 or 6 turns of the wheel clockwise is enough, use your own judgment. The tighter you can get the spring, the better the recoil will be when you let loose the cord when starting engine. You need to line up the hole in the wheel to the hole in the cowl as close as possible. Use a screwdriver or some other small sturdy object to "lock" wheel in place for next step. There is plenty of openings through the cowl in which you can lock the wheel to keep it stationary while attaching the new cord and to keep the holes lined up as close a possible. It can be difficult to "fish" the new cord from the outside of the housing and into the holes through which you need to pull the new cord through. I have found that if you take a flame to melt the end of the cord so that it will not unravel makes it easier and if you can bear the heat, while the cord is soft from the heat, twist cord in a spiral shape. This will make "fishing" much easier.Once accomplished, tie a knot as close to the end of the cord as possible and pull line back towards the outside with a little strength to "seat" the knot. Remove screwdriver and let the tension of the spring rewind the new cord into the housing. If the spring completely unwinds then pull on the cord from the outside so the wheel turns at a minimum of on turn so there is always tension on the new cord. Route the new cord through the eye on the mower handle then install pull knob. Pull excess line through pull knob, tie knot, then cut off excess cord. Should be ready to go.

Replace starter cord


Undo the screws holding the housing of the starter cord & remove the whole thing.
Before continuing it may be wise to take a picture of the pulley & how its held on so you can put it together correctly.
Inside you should see a removable clip attached to a moving nylon peg thing, remove this, then a washer, then remove the round plastic pulley that holds the cord.
Remove the old cord.
Thread one end of the new cord (ensure it's the same thickness) from the outside of the pulley through the hole so it comes out in the middle as it was before.
Tie a knot in it, trim off any eccess cord & pull it back through, tucking the knot neatly into the place where the knot goes.
Wrap the cord 3 or 4 times round the pulley & thread the loose end through the hole in the housing.
Put the pulley back in the housing as it came off & replace the washer, peg & clip.
Pull the cord to make sure it springs back ok.
***Now pull the chord right out & slowly let the spring pull it back in. Now thread your pull handle on right up to the housing, put a knot in it a bit further than this point so the spring holds the handle tight to the housing and its not dangling loose.DONT CUT THE ECCESS OFF YET
Ensure youre happy with the length of cord when its pulled out
If its too short, undo the knot, leave the pulley in place, use a thin screwdriver to pull the cord into the housing to wrap it round the pulley one more time (theres normally a notch cut out of the pulley to get the cord round between the pulley & housing)
Now repeat from ***
Now screw the housing back in place.
It's easier to do than write!!!!

The head won,t turn


you will need to pull the head off, as it sounds like the cable is off. there should be four bolts/screws, there maybe some in the middle also, gently remove the head(this is the top of the trimmer where the pull cord is, once you have it separated you can turn the cable by hand and the line feeder should rotate, if it does then look inside the head and make sure it is still square and not rounded. or you can pull the line feeder off and pull the cord and see if the cable rotates, whichever you feel comfortable with trying. Good Luck Tim

How do you remove the clutch drum assembly for model #316.791890


Your clutch drum is held on with a Torx head screw which is screwed into the end of the crankshaft. To lock the engine up so crank won't turn, remove the spark plug, rotate the engine so the piston is down and put some clean pull rope or otherwise soft material in cylinder. ...make sure it is something that won't hang up in the ports on the sides. Then when you rotate the crank, it will compress the rope or soft material, locking up the engine to facilitate removal of the Torx screw, The screw will come loose but will probably not come all the way out...that's just the way they made it.

How do i replace the nylon cord on stihl fse 60 trimmer pg 19 of the manual says to consult the chapter on how to replace the cord, but no such chapter exists


* NO DISASSEMBLY REQUIRED(DON'T TAKE HEAD APART!)*
First make sure the arrows on the head are aligned and the bump head is securely tightened(clockwise). Take a minimum of 20 feet of line from the package and cut it evenly so you have two pieces of equal length. Next insert one end of each piece into the holes on the trimmer head until they are seated firmly(some minor twisting of the head may be required to get the line in more than an inch or two). Once you have gotten a couple of inches into the trimmer head you should have everything still fully assembled with a long strand of line coming from each of the holes. Now begin turning the gear shaped part of the head in the direction of the arrow indicators and the line should begin winding itself inside the 'keeper'. Once the head doesn't turn freely or starts to slip it's full and you can cut off the remaining line, if any, and get to cutting.For more visit www.CollegiateSunglasses.com for safety glasses and other items.

Broken pull cord


You have to take four allen screw out of the plastic that holds the engine on. There is also one by the spark plug that needs to come out. Once the engine is loose, you have to unplug one wire and unscrew the other. Then the engine should come off. Then loosen the two allen screws holding the pulley in and it will come out.

Need to replace cord on vintage Sunbeam Mixmaster Junior


For mixmaster junior, but should be relevent to many old sunbeams:

That's not the power cord going to the speed switch. You don't need to get those screws off.
To replace the cord:
Cut the old power cord near where it enters the blender.
remove the two front screws, pull off front housing.
remove 1/4" nuts found in recesses of exposed front plate.
pull speed handle out far enough to get a screwdriver under exposed front plate, and pry gently. It'll come off as it's a friction fit.
cooling fan blade is now visible, you need to remove it.
pry up gently on the teeth attaching it to the motor shaft.
Work your way around the 4 sets of teeth, it'll come off. Don't lose the two washers.
unscrew the electrical contacts.
take off the speednuts holding the brush assembly in place.
gently pull up on the brush assembly with a needle nose, until it comes out.
now remove the screws holding the motor coils in place. They're the same ones the speednuts attached to, and have hex heads you can get at with a needlenose.
once those are out, pull on the motor coils gentle, and wiggle them out of the housing.
You'll see the stub of the old power cord at the back of it.
Get a round replacement wire of the right diameter, thread it through the cord hole in the blender, and connect it up to the coils.
-I had to drill the power cord hole 1/16" larger than it was to get a modern cord to fit through it.
On the stub of the old cord, you'll see a metal ring which serves to anchor the cord in blender body. remove it (screwdriver + needlenose and pry), and attach to new cord at the righ position.
Put everything back together, being careful not to bust the carbon brushes.
Congrats, you now have a functional blender with a cord that won't try to electrocute you.
